Join us in the beautiful Hudson valley area for this rare opportunity for a 60 hour teacher training with Elysabeth Williamson, founder of Principle Based Partner Yoga.

Principle-Based Partner Yoga™ is a visionary healing art that combines ancient Yogic wisdom with modern mind/body understanding. The training is designed not just for Yoga teachers, but for everyone (minimum one year Yoga practice) interested in an in-depth exploration of Partner Yoga. The purpose of this course is to empower individuals with the skills and confidence needed to share Partner Yoga with others while accelerating their own understanding and experience in the practice.

Partner Yoga is not a substitute for individual Yoga practice – it is an accelerated path to experience directly the root principle of Yoga – union. It deepens and sensitizes our individual practice while awakening our direct experience of how we are all intimately connected.

This 60-hour, first of its kind training in Partner Yoga includes an in-depth curriculum and training manual. The skills received though this training are invaluable assets for any Yoga Teacher as well as anyone with a sincere interest in Partner Yoga. Graduates leave the training prepared to lead workshops and classes in their own communities and studios.

Those attending the training not only learn to safely navigate aerial poses, they will also be trained in a variety of approaches and applications for the creative use of Partner Yoga. An overview of the curriculum as well as all other relevant information can be found on our website at:
